Quadrature error estimation for MoM matrix entries
Paper in proceedings, 2017

This paper is concerned with the method of moments (MoM) for electric field integral equation (EFIE) based numerical electromagnetic analysis of conducting surface structures. Inner (source) and outer (testing) integrals are encountered, when evaluating matrix entries. The well-known Radial-Angular-R1-Sqrt (RA-R1-Sqrt) weak near singularity cancellation transformation quadrature scheme for the inner integrals and standard Gaussian numerical integration for the outer integrals, are considered. It is shown that the quadrature error in the matrix entries, due to inner integral evaluation, can be accurately estimated under certain circumstances. A closed-form quadrature error estimate for the RA-R1-Sqrt scheme is employed.
